Victory

It was great being back racing, great to win the Duathlon on Sunday.

Victory

Some victories taste better than others. This was one of those victories that had the perfect timing, a victory that gave me a confidence boost that i needed badly. After a few months without racing and lots of health issues you tend to become a bit insecure and the motivation level gets low.

I knew that i would race tired. The previous week i had done a solid week of 22 hours of training. That might not be that much, but for a person with a full time job it is.

I started of the first run (5km) in a controlled pace. The objective was to manage to keep contact with the first girls. I entered in the first transition park in 3rd place. Did a very good transition and hammered the bike right from the start. The other girls took more time in the transition park and i managed to get a gap right from the start. The gap grew each lap and i entered the transition park for the last run with a 2min lead over the others.

Out on the bike course

The last run (2,5km) was hard and i ran as fast as i could after 5km run + 20km bike.

Last 2,5km…

It was a great feeling to race again and especially to go home with a victory in the luggage and a great 2nd place for the team.
